It was a weekend full of WCHA conference games, and several teams took advantage of the conference matchups to help better their spot in the standings before the holidays.
Here are three things we learned this weekend:
1. Michigan Tech sent a message with a sweep against Bowling Green — they are taking aim at a conference title. The Huskies only allowed two goals in back-to-back games and played a strong defensive game against a team that’s been finding it’s offensive groove lately.
2. Alabama-Huntsville is taking strides and starting to win the games they are supposed to win. The Chargers swept Northern Michigan this weekend, and look like they’ve found some timely offense to go with a solid defensive strategy.
3. Bemidji State continues to prove it’ll be hard to catch on top of the WCHA Standings. The Beavers took five out of six points this past weekend and now have a seven-point lead on second-place Michigan Tech.
